  • I am so excited for this, but wondering if there are any guesses for the anticipated wait times?

    • I would expect that the more unique opportunities, like the special characters and things like the Cinderella Coach will have pretty lengthy lines. Those things typically do. I would expect moderate waits for the other opportunities.
